Abstract null null Aims null To compare the risk of incident major adverse limb events (MALEs) between patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) who initiated glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) or sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 Inhibitors (SGLT2Is). null null null Methods null T2DM patients with prescriptions of GLP-1 RAs or SGLT2Is between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2018 were retrospectively identified from a multi-institutional database. We used inverse probability of treat...

This study evaluated the risk of major bleeding associated with concomitant use of direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) and anticancer drugs (ACDs), which share metabolic pathways, in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and cancer. We performed a retrospective cohort study using Taiwan’s National Health Insurance database and included patients with AF and cancer who received DOAC prescriptions from 1 to 2012 to 31 December 2017. The incidence of major bleeding in person-quarters with concomitant ...

Abstract null null Background null To determine the relationship between hospital surgical volume and mortality risk and valve repair rate in infective endocarditis (IE) surgery. null null null Methods null Using the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD), 3873 patients were identified who underwent surgery between 2000 and 2013. The cumulative hospital volume of valve surgery for IE was calculated, and patients were divided into 4 subgroups according to the quartile. Outcome...

AIM Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2is) cause an initial decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The effect of different eGFR decline following SGLT2i treatment on risks of atrial fibrillation (AF), cardiovascular, and renal events in patients with T2DM are unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS We used medical data from a multicenter health care provider in Taiwan and recruited 11 769 T2DM patients with baseline/follow-up ...

Objective null This study assesses the mortality outcomes of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in cancer patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) and atrial fibrillation (AF). null Methods null Medical records of cancer patients receiving NOACs for VTE or AF between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2016, were retrieved from Taiwan's National Health Institute Research Database. NOACs were compared using the inverse probability of treatment weighting (IPTW) method. The primar...

Abstract null null Background null Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and coronary instent restenosis (ISR) treated with drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty have been excluded from randomized controlled trials. We aimed to investigate the clinical impact of CKD stratified by severity, on clinical outcomes for patients with ISR treated with DCB angioplasty. null null null Methods null This cohort study enrolled 1,376 patients treated with DCB angioplasty; 639 CKD patients defined as hav...

BACKGROUND There is a controversy over the association between obesity and the risk of renal events in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Furthermore, whether body weight (BW) loss following sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2i) treatment associated with risk of adverse renal events is unknown. METHODS We used medical data from a multi-center healthcare provider in Taiwan, enrolling 8992 T2DM patients with a baseline/following-up BW data available after around 12 weeks of...

ABSTRACT Globally, 32% to 70% patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) are prescribed oral anticoagulants (OACs) with warfarin for stroke prevention. However, patients with AF on OACs may experience intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which presents a treatment dilemma. We therefore investigated whether resuming OACs in these patients is beneficial. Electronic medical records of patients with AF on OACs discharged with ICH between 2001 and 2013 were retrieved from the Taiwan National Health Insurance R...
